6-8 July 2022: Online Conference at University College London
Justice and equity, just futures in an urbanising and mobile world, facing a climate and ecological crisis in a pandemic or post-pandemic context
Monday 4th July 10:00-13:00 BST
15 selected PhD students will participate in the Masterclass preceding the DSA2022 conference, where they will receive expert feedback on their PhD project and key issues emanating from their work.
All those attending will need to register for the conference, which will take place online later in the week following the Masterclass. Please register during Early Bird registration 11 April – 12 May to signal your intent to attend.
Please submit a long abstract (up to 500 words) to conference(at)devstud.org.uk briefly outlining your PhD project and a separate sentence that states the key challenge you would like to focus on (for example, working with elites, generalising from a small sample, applying conceptual frameworks developed in other settings, etc.).
The application process has now ended, the deadline for submissions was April 28th 2022.
Each successful applicant will have 45 minutes allocated to them in the Masterclass.
This time will be used to give a short presentation (10 mins), engage with feedback from a discussant (5 mins) and participate in a more general discussion around the issues raised. The aim is for participants to receive excellent, focused feedback, from the experts/discussants and audience members, but also to highlight issues that may be common to other researchers in the audience so we can collectively consider how to address them.
Five sessions will run in parallel from 10:00 – 13:00 on the morning of 4 July, chaired by members of the committee that selected the abstracts.
Successful applicants must submit a four page paper by 17th June 2022 expanding on their abstract for the discussants to comment on and to share with people attending the Masterclass ahead of the conference.
Experts and discussants will be leading academics who are part of the DSA and/or part of the ESRC SeNSS Doctoral Training Partnership.
